Gift of 30

Celebrate my birthday!  By Mercedes Sanchez

gift of 30I don't often share personal information on here, but in just a couple of days I'm turning the big 3-0! Instead of presents, extravagant dinner or party brunch, I ask that you help me celebrate by donating $30, OR WHATEVER YOU CAN AFFORD (even a dollar will be great), to the Cornelia Connelly Center school.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

If 30 of my friends contribute $30 in honor of my 30th birthday, I will raise $900 for the Connelly Center, an all-girls middle school in New York City's Lower East Side. (Though I'm aiming for 100 friends and $3,000.)

Please give your gift to my Gift of 30 Campaign on the school's NYCharities.org site.

You may mention Gift of 30 so they could know where the funds are coming from :)

If you'd like to notify me of the donation, you're welcomed to include my e-mail address mercedes [at] bechicmag.com where it says 'notify someone,' but you don't have to.

For more information on the Connelly Center go here, or see the video below.

To donate go to: NYCharities.org.

Thanks in advance.
